Please don't tell me you can co load as 2 pallets on a swb would be a full load or full enough not to be able to get anything meanigfull on board. Thoughts?

Booking Information Item Description 2x Additional Comments 2 pallets, 2 collections, 2 deliveries (St Helens & Rossendale) Delivering to E9 & Dagenham (9 miles apart) This week, Pays £85.00 Suggested Vehicle SWB Transit

In the job description it says deliver This week, i suspect the listing automatically says asap

Either way 85 quid? 4 different places plus the joy that is London? Noooooooooo, someone else can have that given my van doesnt run on fresh air.

Full load for a suggested SWB, half a load (subject to weight) for a XLWB which could then co-load with something else.

Unfortunately every single load is a backload for someone at some stage, if the price is wrong for you then just move on. If the job doesn't get taken, the vendor has 2 choices, pay a better rate or not get the job covered.

Each pallet contains 60 boxes to be hand balled to top floor of 8 story building and there's no lift!

I agree, Discussing and moaning about this all week does absolutely nothing.

If it does not suit... DON'T DO IT!

Take the job for £85. Then travel the distance to cover this cost say 30% of the journey. Ring the vendor for them to take the goods the rest of the way.

32.6pplm is a joke, but thats just what people are looking for these days. None of us off here would do it. We all know there are 'drivers' out there with a rusty old sprinter that will co load half a dozen jobs like this 7 days a week.

We could not agree more but we are all guilty for this, as at some point we have done a job for peanuts or co loaded jobs for peanuts to make a good job out of a bad one and so here we are moaning for something we all started as some point
